Auburn "Definitely Up There" For 4-Star LB

4-star linebacker Tre Lamar talks about his visit to see the Auburn Tigers on Thursday.

Roswell, Ga.--Taking a visit in March to see the Auburn campus and talk with the coaches, four-star linebacker Tre Lamar was back on the Plains on Thursday to see the Tigers go through the paces in spring football practice. Getting to spend quality time with Coach Will Muschamp as well as learn more about AU's civil engineering studies, Lamar noted that overall it was a productive trip.

“It was great,” Lamar said. “I really wanted to see the program and how they practice. It was nice. They bring a lot of energy in practice and the speed of everything. I like the energy out there and the speed of everything so I think the coaches bring not only schemes, but also that energy to practice.”

Being recruited by Auburn as a linebacker, Lamar spent much of his time on Thursday watching that position and spending time with Muschamp. With Lance Thompson coaching the buck position for the Tigers that means Muschamp is a position coach, something Lamar said would be be a big deal if he were to sign with Auburn.

“He brings energy to practice,” Lamar said of Muschamp. “He really knows what he wants from his linebackers whether he wants you to run through to get the running back, he’s just very detail oriented. He knows exactly what he wants from his players.

“That’s awesome,” he added of Muschamp being on the field. “Coach Muschamp has coached for a lot of places and his track record is great. I think it would be a great experience to be coached by him.”

Currently with a top five of Auburn, Alabama, Clemson, Florida and Florida State, Lamar said he plans to make a decision sometime this fall and he plans to be an early graduate. As for the Tigers he said they have made an impact on him in the last month with his two visits.

“Auburn is definitely in my top five,” Lamar said. “I definitely like Auburn with what I got to see today in terms of practice and the engineering program. They are definitely up there.”
